    The reviews on google poorly represent this place. I've volunteered at many venues and these employees generally care a TON, they are so well organized and do their best to keep the residents entertained. Typical "Virtue signaling" esque reviewers only rating once they find something completely random to complain about based on anectdotal evidence of a singular occurrence

    The CNAs especially at night a terrible they don't pay attention to the residents and they take away the their call bell, which is a Joint commission nono, so they don't have to deal with the patients at night. The nurses hardly give you eye contact and they don't tend to most of the medical needs that the patients have. My mother went there for skilled rehab because of her poor insurance and I wouldn't recommend anybody going to this place. It is Despicable and the people that work there should be ashamed. You can definitely tell that the nurses and CNAs are burnt out. The physical therapy department is wonderful as well as the social work department. The rest of the nursing home is horrid.

    Place is reasonably clean in the rehab area. Some stains of the chairs, wonder what those are?? Most of the staff don't speak English and makes it very hard to get anything done. When you ask them something you usually get a stair or they get aggravated in some way. Food is the worst I've ever experienced in a health care setting. Asked for scrambled eggs and bacon and was told they don't have bacon, What!! So I sent the cold eggs back an exchanged for Oatmeal, can't go wrong with that... Well it tasted like garlic!! Sent that back, now the Nursing Assistants who don't speak English are now getting mad at me. So I asked for toast, never got it. This was a typical morning at the Ellis house while I'm trying to rehab from Surgery. PS. The Aids hid behind the bathroom doors and use there cell phones so they don't get caught, how immature. This place is privately owned and is for profit and you can see profit is there primary goal, not patients.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
